I love Okashi Connection's new boxes.
The information booklet.
Inside, there are pictures of everything in the box, along with descriptions.
White Choco Rusk: These puffs have a white chocolate coating and taste like those waffer cookies with icing in them (the chocolate/strawberry/vanilla ones).
Satsumanma Renkon Mix Chips This is a mix of sweet potato chips and lotus root chips. The lotus root chips have the holes in them and they were sweeter than the sweet potato.
Puchi Cream Stew Chips I thought these were cookies when I saw them, but they are thin crisps that are flavored like Japanese cream stew, which is made of beef, onions, carrots and broccoli in a cream broth. These were a bit different but fun to try.
Matcha Milky: These are traditional candies that have a softer outside with a harder gummy like center. My husband likes green tea and he thought these were good and not as strong as Okashi Connection described.
Don-Don Ya These are little pieces of sembei but much different from other sembei I have had. These had a stronger flavor and had a seasoning on them. My husband and I thought these tasted similar to croutons.
Sequoia Choco Wafer Bar This is similar to Kit Kat, only with more rich chocolate throughout the cookie.
Choco Bat These are a chocolate covered round cake. The cake was a bit too dry but the flavor was nice.
Fran Fran is very similar to Pocky, only I think these were a bit thicker. These were strawberry flavored and really tasty.
Bikkuri Pack This is a mystery pack filled with some Japanese favorites.
Okashi Connection provided descriptions of everything, but the variety packs must differ slightly, because not everything matched up. One or two of the names may be different from I describe, so let me know if I am wrong.
From left going clockwise
- Choco Daifuku: This is a marshmallow filled with chocolate
- Yellow Pack (unknown name)– These are like little pieces of traditional rock candy.
- Umaibo Orange Pack – Both Umaibos were different flavors than the information card described. The orange tasted like Hickory Smoked BBQ.
- Umaibo -Cheddar These are my favorite Umaibo flavor!
- New Mochi Taro These are like Don Don Ya, but much plainer.
- Grape Bubble Gum This gum is really soft and flavorful. It had a minty/grape flavor.
- Umaibo Hard Candy– This tasted like a raspberry/cherry flavor.
- Abekko Ramune These are powder candies that dissolve in your mouth.
Final Thought This was a nice box and packed with snacks. Okashi Connection is affordable and packed with snacks each month. The Samuri box is big enough for a family of four to share, at least in our house. If you want to Okashi Connection, click HERE to subscribe and use the code Boxmom to get $1.00 off your box.
